Re: Heartgard/Vectra3D alternatives?
the cost is crazy i agree. And I'm getting a third dog! I had a vet that recommended using it even in the winter because a mosquito might still be in your house alive!
My vet i use now though recommends using every 6 weeks instead of 4. Saves you money and you are not over medicating. It takes several bites from several mosquitos to infect a dog. The medicine does not give protection forward. It kills prior infections up to the time of ingestion. Thats why its ok to give it 6 weeks instead of 4.
